Orientation and Transition
Orientation is an important start for your child and family to connect to our Service. We encourage each child to attend our service in the company of a family member before they start their first day with us. This gives you and your child the opportunity to gain an understanding of our program, the lay out of the room, where to put your child’s belongings, provide educators with additional information about your child and how we can best support their transition and settling in period. The Nominated Supervisor will contact you to arrange suitable times and days for visits.
If your child is reluctant to attend, please discuss this with their assigned educator so that they can develop strategies with you to support the transition from home to the Service. You are welcome to take photos of your child in our environment to show and discuss at home with them. Some children like to take a book from our library to read at home and return on the next visit.
Transitioning between age groups
As your child grows and reaches new developmental milestones they may be ready to move to the next age room. We will work with you to determine the best time to transition your child.
